Why is digital eco-conception essential ?
Contrary to what one might think, digital technology is not intangible and its environmental impacts are very real. Thus, the digital sector is now responsible for 4% of global greenhouse gas emissions and the sharp increase in usage suggests a 50% growth of this carbon footprint by 2025 according to ADEME. This is why it is essential to take into account the environmental impact of digital solutions from their conception.
The aim of digital eco-conception is to reduce the negative environmental impacts of a product by taking into account all stages of its life cycle.
